If I had to pick a love of a certain kind of art, for me it would certainly be botanical. I really love the old, vintage ones, but I recently priced them and originals can go for as high as $200! I guess it will be reproductions and reprints for me! As an artist, my dream is to spend the day with my colored pencils, sketching the gentle leaves of a Hosta or the bright red roundness of rose hips in the fall. I know I wax romantic when I don't even have the time to wax my legs.... but I thought I would share some of the botanical/floral art from around my home with you.
This was a cheap TJ Maxx score... Love the birds and the leaves.
I found this little toile box in a "junque" shop in Paducah, Kentucky last year for $8.
Yes, this picture was a $2 Salvation Army find. You can hate me now if you like.
I even have this little candle I thought was stinky, but I loved the glass it was in.
I have a couple of Kim Parkers' which I adore. The one next to the books was another find I bought for around $5. That was a good thrifting day.
A girlfriend gave me this one because she hate the gray frame. As you and I know ladies,a little black spray paint will fix anything.
And I just found this one in an old book and thought it looked nice on the sheet music. I am finding reproduction botanical prints for $3 and $4 all over Ebay and am sloooowly adding to my collection here and there. It makes me think of the Spring that is rapidly coming!
